I have been trying to get a position in a NICU for a year now. Does anyone have any suggestions that could help me get in? Nobody around here wants new NICU nurses.. and the people that get them.. just flukes I guess... like.. not even going in to interview for that position and them offering it. I am incredibly frustrated. This is the only thing I ever wanted to do.. this is WHY i went to nursing school!
I took the first job I could, in psych. Now, FINALLY, I've been offered a job in a hospital an hour away.. in physical medicine. I am getting incredibly discouraged. This is all I've ever wanted to do.
I did my clinical leadership(capstone) in the NICU, and I am NRP and PALS certified.
